Kings Park Flowers (Part 2 of 4): Kangaroo Paw


Kangaroo Paws have a striking flower with red stems and green petals instead of the far more common green stems and red flowers. They are endemic only to the south west of Western Australia.




This Kangaroo Paw stem has several dead blooms (the lower ones), two flowering blossoms (with fronds) and three unopened buds (at the top). Out of focus in the photo’s left central background are a bunch of other Kangaroo Paws.
